Re: Tablets of death
"I expect a lot of them don't even know how to turn on flight mode (or even that they have one)."
It doesn't matter how idiot proof you make a device or how fisher price you make the OS, iPad owners still need help to break the rules.
"And I read a lot, from an electronic reader"
A book too heavy for your puny little boy arms? Stop trying to justify your childish little strop.
Re: Only the clueless use electronic toys in flight
"The majority of airline travelers have better sense than to lug electronic toys with them for flight. Only the clueless who need to entertain themselves haul this crap onboard. The younger generation in particular are easily bored. They wouldn't think of watching a movie or reading or doing something educational. They desire to be entertained 24/7. That explains electronic toys, Farcebook and social media."
Grow up son. You know nothing.
If it ain't tested as being no harm, banned they should remain.
What's wrong with you? You must pull out a device for a poxy 10 hours!
Keep them banned!
I dont want to be sat next to someone tap tap atpping away for hours. There is just no need. Your not on a flight for anything other than getting from A to B.
"I reckon a couple of harsh convictions will sort the pranksters out pretty soon."
You'd think! But 1,000's of hoax/non-emergency calls are received every day (not least because parents think giving their child a mobile/home phone is ok) and nothing seems to happen!
Apple kills the TV star!
"it's possible that French testicles are feeling the long-term effect of their owner's penchant for riding bicycles while dressed in beret and stripey jumper and weighed down under strings of onions, resting only for robust three-hour lunches of stuffed songbirds marinated in Calvados."
WOW Lester! I bet you’re a stuck in your ways old man!
Your oh-so-cliché comments certainly reflect this.
For a tech site, the opinions of the commentards scares me.
It's unbelieveable just how one sides and blinkered you techies really are!
Definately not considered opinions, just bollox.
EPIC FAIL ladies and gentlemen.
Re: Jobs deserved an actor
"I'm not a Steve Jobs fanboi but I think he deserved a true actor to impersonate him.
Kutcher is a good third rate actor, doing an ok job in a crappy tv series."
Then Kutcher is the perfect choice for an imperfect man.
Re: Apple haters can start getting their rotten tomatoes ready now
"….some people hate Apple/Jobs with a vengance or blindness which is a shame"
…..some people love Apple/Jobs vehemently, which is a shame… Fixed it for you.
It’s just a bloody crappy tech co. He’s just a man. Nothing special.
What is a shame is that retarded people want to place more kudos to the man/company than deserves.
Sorry ifolk, but your choice in handset would make me think twice!
Your either a MASSIVE PIKEY or a useless fop. Either way, your choice of last decade’s tech of a limited feature phone, which has been spectacularly superseded, doesn't bode well for you.
"Or a valuable, skilled asset who won't put up with this sort of crap."
No, just a silly old fop with a chavvy "Jeremy Kyle" iPhone!
Re: Sounds like....
"there are so many reasons why being so judgemental is wrong."
But everyone does, even you!
Re: Sounds like....
"due to freaks that hate tech,"
Informed employees who choose not to fall into the Apple trap are hardly tech haters!
Apple folk cost more due to the incredibly high number of support calls received by them.
Re: Wouldn't happen in the UK
"over-privileged fops who have never done a day’s graft in their lives are exactly the sort of people HR bods are looking for!"
Sad isn't it.
iPhone flops need the most supporting, costing more for less output.
""Whipping out your iStuff for everyone to drool over is sooo 2010...".....you mean last decade!
In the UK, owning an iPhone doesn't mean your wealthy. Every chav pikey and their dog has one.
iPhone = Burberry.
Chav phone with limited feature set, yeah, classy!
Tory scum is full of shite! Nosey bastards need to keep their nose out.
Like terror groups and SOC groups don't already use techniques to circumvent these measures they wish to introduce?
It's just another way for the gov to spy on the people.
Like NFC, the fannybois claimed wireless power was a useless fad.
Now behind-the-times Slackle are claiming that they invented it, and are obviously looking to introduce the tech into the next monstrosity that is iPhone.
Behind the times as usual.
"I'm concerned about the young people who write to me and say they are terribly afraid, they say they can't sleep, they can't eat. Some of them have said they are contemplating suicide.
So while it's a joke to many people and a mystery to others, there is a core of people who are truly concerned."
Please make public the indentities of these people. They are clearly a danger to the public and to themselves. Lets ensure that thier rantings and beliefs stay in their heads and do not corrupt the rest of society.
Why is it that I never experience the "issues" other report?
Fast, fluid, responsive does what I want it to do!
Problem exists between the ears to those holding the device.
I dont have any issues, so what are others doing wrong?
"if you don't resist the almost overwhelming urge to accumulate junk."
Only the feeble minded get overwhelming urges to accumulate junk.
Clean house/clean mind.
You view were too late to market, done!
iPad = shite, got it!
"ample helping of fairy dust :)"
Thats called fannybois cash. MUGS.
Re: Boot on the other foot
Makes sense to satistfy the largest group of consumers first.
I think we'll be seeing this more in future.
"Apple's glass-fronted stores are things of beauty compared to other retail outlets"
This "fact" needs to be justified! How?
Aren't most Mall stores glass fronted?
The Slackle store in the mall in my hometown is glass fronted with the odd bit of POS.
The neighbouring stores are also glass fronted, with POS and promotional material in it.
So why do you imbue Slackle stores with this nonsense?
""Redesigned from the inside out, ........ into an aluminium and glass enclosure that measures just five mm thin at its edge," Apple said."
Redesigned to look like it did previously??
Oi! Apple! Alu and glass?? STILL!! You do know that its been 5-6 years of the same old shite now don't you?
Pretty little graphs mean F all.
I don't believe the sh te that I'm forced to read because my experiences do not tally with the pretty little graphs and bullshit commentary.
I've been raising these issues for years now, and was always shot down in flames because Apple could do no wrong! Sad people just waking up to what was obvious all along.
My experience is that academics (which we all know are good at one thing only with ZERO common sense) "execs" (who we all know are those responsible for poorly thought out and implemented decisions) and "fashionistas" (LAUGHS LOUDLY) who are so dumb as to be ridiculous are Apples core purchasers.
Those people who shouldn't have any say about anything.
Re: What did Apple get for it's money?
For those weak of mind "Branding will kick Quality's butt every day of the week!"
Re: Wow - Holding folks responsible?
"so someone could be blamed when the inevitable failure of the idiotic management "plan" occurred?"
Definately! It's the senior management who have not got the slightest clue!
Radical and sweeping changes are needed by Apple. They produce the OS and the core apps, and all of them are complete wank!
The only thing they don't do is produce the hardware, which is the only appealing thing to Apple purchasers, even though far superior hardware and OS exists. Proof that people do buy shit on a stick.
Oh so last decade Apple, tisk tisk tisk..
Good 'ole China!
I don't think I'd be sane living in a country that is so restrictive. I thought the nutters on the UK were bad enough! Not that our government is any better. I live in a world of the mentally ill!
Re: I can't wait...
"He just wasn't able to comprehend the damage that could be done if his devices fell into the wrong hands. The legal requirements bypassed him too."
Just who employs these people? These high earners don't have a bloody clue. Too busy "showing off" his shitting iPad (if you can show off an iPad). Of course anyone with a brain cell knows, iPad = they are a bit thick.
Re: Both have their problems.
You are also 10000% full of shite, and you'd be out the door quicker than your feet could carry you.
Twonks like you deserve to be twatted!
I can't wait...
...for the ICO to HAMMER some company for £M's for breaking the rules, because some twonk wanted to use his iPad.
If your a BYOD'er your a tw t!
Hello 00's, got some more of your lot trying to sneak into the teens with their outdated and antiquated tech.
Re: If anything
"Sure, you can connect a PC up to these bits of kit, but them you have to factor in keeping a PC in the living room."
Forget childish games, but I've used a PC the the living room for over a decade! How else can I use the PC's functionality whilst connected to both the big screen and the monitor?
"Atari founder Nolan Bushnell has doubts over the long-term success of the Nintendo Wii U, after admitting he doesn't get the tablet-controlled console."
And if a tech head doesn't get it, the absolutely thick as pigs sh te consumers won't have a clue, or the brain cells to investigate.
